  • An impressive Bronze-sculpted Menorah, created by German-born British Jewish sculptor Benno Elkan, was donated to the Knesset (the Israeli Parliament) by the British Parliament in 1956. It had taken six years to complete this masterpiece. Cast in bronze, the artistic 4'30-metre-high seven-armed chandelier is on display at La Rosaleda, opposite the Knesset building in Jerusalem, and has become a popular tourist attraction. Its sculpted decorations represent Israel's turbulent history, the struggles of the peoples of exile until the rebirth of the Hebrew nation. The seven lamps allude to the branches of human knowledge, represented by the arms of the chandelier tilted slightly inward The meaning of this fascinating work is worthy of being visited, its current location is in front of the Palace of the Parliament next to Wohl Rose Park. I recommend going to visit you will like it
